Happy New Year, Loungers!

We hope that it’s a safe and prosperous one for all of you! We’re well into organising lots of lovely whisky-based fun and games for you throughout 2023, so all being well, we’ll be seeing you all very soon!

And as always, Connas is here to keep you up to date with what’s been happening in the industry over the past week!

New Berrys Outturn!

Berry Bros & Rudd have debuted their latest seasonal collection, including a 2014 Chichibu! Nice!

Belfast To South Korea!

Belfast Distillery Company have secured a distribution deal in South Korea with Goldenblue.

Heritage Research

Experts from Heriot-Watt University are experimenting with eight heritage barley varieties, including a 200-year-old crop, to discover whether ‘distinctive’ new whiskies could be created for Holyrood Distillery. Very Cool…

Spey to Sunderland!

Speyside Distillers has been announced as the latest business set to take space at the Grade II listed venue, Sheepfolds’ stables, located in Sunderland. Interesting…

And Finally…

Research suggests that it takes approximately 66 days for human beings to for a new habit. So, at some time in March I’ll manage to update the year as “23” without typing “22” and having to change it!

These things are sent to try us, folks!
